Yesterday I had an awesome day! I got up early (blah) and went over to Jenna's house at around nine-thirty to watch some movies for the "Watch six inspirational movies in a row" goal on the 77 check book. (inserthappyfacehere) We had already watched one and yesterday knocked off two and a half more! (I have now seen the first half of The Dark Knight three times!)
It was loads of fun, we watched- first Beware of Christians- then yesterday we watched The Book of Eli, Little Women and half of Batman: The Dark Knight. (gotta love our weird combination of movies!) After that we went to help set up for Revolve, a church some friends are starting. I helped set up and then when it started I helped watch the kids. 

Some things I got out of the movies:
The Book of Eli-  I loved how in the movie he was so determined to do what God was telling him to do, after all the doubt and everyone trying to tell him otherwise or stop him, he didn't listen. He kept going. It inspired me to listen closer to God, and if I hear something, chase after it wholeheartedly.

Little Women- Little Women is a great movie about love, family and struggles. I see a lot of myself in Jo when watching this movie, I can be clumsy, stubborn, I can often have a temper, I struggle with not feeling pretty, a lot of things that happened to her I feel like I've had similar situations. (Not to mention she's a writer ;P)
I love the inspiring things Mrs. March says throughout the story.
This quote is a favorite- Mrs. March: "Oh, Jo. Jo, you have so many extraordinary gifts; how can you expect to lead an ordinary life?" It just makes me think, don't try to fit in the world around you, don't try to lead an ordinary life when you are clearly extraordinary!

When we watch five, we're gonna finish with The Help (can't wait!).

Thanks! This goal won't be too hard since I love to write anyway, I'm excited to share my life daily, and I hope this encourages me to want to do more with my day so I can write about it!
